13-inch MacBook Pro RAM: price doubled
When buying a new MacBook, you always get the option to put some extra storage or RAM for a higher price. That is now a bit more expensive with the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. Apple has doubled the price of additional RAM.
The step from 8GB RAM to 16GB RAM previously cost 125 euros. Now you have to deposit 250 euros for that. If you have already ordered this MacBook Pro, then you are in luck. New buyers pay more for the same. The price for the standard version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro without upgrades has remained the same.
Apple often adjusts prices of upgrades, but usually, the prices are lowered. Why Apple increases the cost of extra RAM this time is unclear. It may have to do with deficits related to the corona crisis. Yet many factories have been reopened in China.
It could also be that the price was wrong initially. The same upgrade for the MacBook Air also costs 250 euros. With this adjustment, the price is the same for both devices.
